You may not know him but he was an international superstar in bodybuilding and power events.
Bodybuilding superstar Dallas McCarver, aka “Big Country”, has died after apparently choking on food at his Florida home, TMZ Sports has reported.
McCarver’s girlfriend, WWE superstar Dana Brooke, told TMZ Sports that the 26-year-old was found unconscious just after midnight Tuesday morning by a friend at his home shortly after they spoke on the phone.
McCarver was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports there appears to be no signs of foul play.
Brooke says McCarver told her he was about to make dinner and the last thing he said to her was, “I love you. Goodbye.”
Brooke says the cause of death is believed to be choking on food … and it does not appear McCarver was trying to harm himself.
McCarver had worked out earlier in the day on Monday and seemed to be doing just fine … no signs of a medical problem while hitting a chest press with 160 lbs dumbbells.
Just last year, McCarver placed 8th in the 2016 Mr. Olympia competition.
